When the unthinkable happens, tearing her heart and her family in two, Violet, Princess of Neyr, the third of the Nine Realms of Amera, flees and is caught in a tidal wave of events that brings her face to face with forgotten truths buried for millennia.
Only the discovery of a thousand lifetimes may provide the key to her return home, and when old enemies arrive on the shores of Neyr, distrust and prejudice resurface. Secrets begin to explode all around Violet, setting her world on fire, all those she loves fall victim to a terrorists' plans to eradicated their enemies. But Amera stands in their way, and with no mercy, the enemy is willing to go through the innocent to get what they want.
Violet turns to her best friend Lily, and a few unexpected new friends, who band together to save what they can of her realm, and the rest of Amera. But in the storm that has turned her world upside down, will Violet be able to overcome the nightmare of her past in order to save the future of everyone in Amera, and perhaps the world?
This first volume in the Evolutionaries series skillfully balances intriguing worldbuilding [...] with well-paced action sequences. It also ably handles Violet’s character development along the way while also offering a diverse, lovable supporting cast whose members become the protagonist’s close friends and allies. A notable and thoughtful addition to the crowded shelf of post-apocalyptic YA novels. – Kirkus Reviews
